Be sure to join us on Thursday evening, 6:30 p.m., in the County Extension classroom as West Washington High School student, Griffin Packwood presents on “Grafting.”

Training is open to the public and we especially encourage those interested in becoming a Master Gardener to meet and learn with us.

Thursday’s training will be followed by our monthly business meeting and refreshments.

Grafting

“Grafting or graftage is a horticultural technique whereby tissues from one plant are inserted into those of another so that the two sets of vascular tissues may join together. This vascular joining is called inosculation. The technique is most commonly used in asexual propagation of commercially grown plants for the horticultural and agricultural trades.” ~ https://www.bing.com/search?q=grafting&pc=MOZI&form=MOZTSB
